typical!! As soon as i get back from holiday I get hit by a load of work from all sides!! Anyway, i need a quick answer to a REALLY basic question...
I'm doing a flythrough, and in the scene there is a plasma screen and i want the screen to change every so often during the scene, how do i do it? See, basic, i know.... :surprised

make a (uncompressed) .avi of the screen with changes every so often and then apply that .avi to the screen as an image map. Make sure to go to the edit properties on the image and set it to sequence and then render away!! if you have trouble making a .avi, you could also just use a sequence of static images (.jpg, .bmp, .etc) as long as they are in a folder and named sequentially (i.e. file000.jpg, file001.jpg, file002.jpg...). Hope this helps!!
